Nissan Stadium is scheduled to host a Gold Cup doubleheader on Saturday featuring the United States vs. Panama followed by Martinique vs. Nicaragua. Metro Sports Authority director Monica Fawknotson told The Tennessean that the damage will have no impact on the games Saturday because no seats were sold in that section and confirmed that the damage was caused by a misfired shell.

The Tennessee Titans will not use the stadium until Aug. 19, according to The Tennessean

Butch Spyridon, the President and CEO of Nashville Convention and Vistors Corps. told WKRN that nobody was injured and added that Pyro Shows, the company that handled Tuesday's fireworks display, will pay for any repairs.
